    Finally!

    Does it go last in the chain? :D

    I wonder what AnalogMan or Keeley could do to upgrade it... :twisted:

    That "TEMPO" input on the right there - that allow you to hook up with your drummer. It sort of quantizes your licks with his kick and snare. It's really cool.

    But I've got an original TB-1 and a TB-2. They're both 100% analog. They're much more ..... well...sort of organic sounding. It's hard to describe, but I like the TB-1 best... It's what Stevie Hendrix used.

    If you use two, you turn into a shredder.

    It's a Lays.

    I've tried the Pringles (to crunchy) and the Ruffles (to brittle), but I always go back to the Lays...it's just so...organic.

    What...are you trying to get this thread closed?

    I'm wondering if the vintage TB-1 is still available under $1000.00?
    Aren't the pringles chips are an amalgamation?
    I heard that they aren't even 100% chip.
    You know how it is with vintage pedals.

    I think that's right, Gary. The crazy costs of the original TB-1s, if you can even find an authentic one in good nick these days, is one of the reasons that the boutique versions--available with either the kettle chip for the full experience or the baked chip if you only want about half the available flavor--have taken off.

    These things aren't true bypass, and they will color your tone.

    Milli Vanilli used the Ultimate TB rackmount unit, with true bypass of the signal altogether.

    These things must be very hard to find. No one I've heard playing local gigs lately seems to have one.

    Durtdog, the cost of the TB is prohibitive, that's why most weekend warriors opt for the more affordable multi-effects units.
    All the tone-sucking, note-drowning features, without the talent boost.

    You really need the Keely mod for those. It adds a special dip to the lays that just makes it sing!
